Peter's Online Typing Course
Beginning typists, start your fingers!
Grade Level: 6-8, 9-12

This site was created by Peter Hudson, Web developer and teacher, and provides free, online typing lessons and exercises for beginning typists.
The site has a simple easy to follow format with the links grouped into three categories (Preliminaries, Lessons and Exercises) that are listed in the left sidebar. Adobe Flash Player is required and can be downloaded from the site.

Students, teachers or anyone interested in increasing their typing skills will find this site helpful. The site is self described as a place for "beginning typists and frustrated hunt-and-peckers who want to move from four-finger typing to full-blown touch typing." Users will want to begin with the "preliminaries" that provide information on how to use the course, typing ergonomics and principles of typing. The lessons begin with the basics of home row, top row or QWERT, bottom row and numbers row. The final section deals with exercises to train the fingers and improve accuracy and speed.
